Hedge fund manager, Adam Sender, has become a major contemporary art collector over the past few years. Sothebys is preparing to offer over 400 works by 139 artists in the span of a year.
At only 45, Sender has been known to make smart choices over a consistent amount of time. He has been able to make his personal vision of what is good contemporary art pay off as a chronicle of the best working artists right now. Sender said he has attempted to avoid the flavor of the month and instead selected artists he thought would have long successful careers. Adam Sender was also written about by ArtNews.

Sender's collection will highlight works by important artists like Keith Haring, Martin Kippenberger, and Dan Flavin. All three are considered to be modern masters. Cindy Sherman and Richard Prince will also have several work represented. So will young up and coming artists like Adam McEwen, Rashid Johnson, and Lucien Smith.

He has also been able to work with the top women in the art world, dealers like Barbara Gladstone, Sadie Coles, and Shaun Regen. Top women artists represented in the collection includes Barbara Kruger, Jenny Holzer, and Sarah Lucas.
When he began collecting, Sender had no idea where it would ultimately take him. About it he said:
“When I started buying art, I never thought that this was going to turn into what it turned into. This was always long-term in nature for me. Every single thing I bought, I was passionate about. It grew organically.”

As it turns out, capital investment strategists and trendy shoppers are not all that different. We more or less have the same goals-increased ROI with minimum risk potential. Finding a balance between return and risk is important to the investor's diversified portfolio and the chic shopper's closet. I recently had lunch with a good friend of mine who is now one of New York's most established capital strategists, Sam Tabar and we had a good laugh comparing our insights. And of course, we traded savings pointers for style pointers. CNBC recently did an article on Sam talking investment and commodities selection strategies. Yeah. He's kind of a big deal.

 Sam Tabar is highly knowledgeable about investment strategies and, it just so happens that he holds a law degree from Columbia, so, if you check out his site, samtabar.com you'll see that he's kind of a rockstar.  Sam has worked for several notable firms, and his experience in the legal arena includes working with hedge funds and other types of investments.

The Importance of Properly Managed Funds

When you are making an investment decision about commodities, Tabar recommends that you take a closer look at who is managing the fund. It is not enough to simply know what commodities are included in the fund. You need to know who is making the decisions about the investments. Consider researching the track record of the manager, his experience, his education level and other important factors. Having a properly allocated fund now is great, but the manager will need to have the education and experience to know when to make trades so that the fund continues to perform well for you in the months and years to come.

 Conducting Research Before Making an Investment

It can be nearly impossible to fully predict how well an investment will perform going forward into the future, but when it comes to commodities funds, the fact is that history can be a great predictor. There are many factors that can drive the value of an investment upward or downward, and monitoring each of the factors can be burdensome. But if anybody knows how to make a good solid assessment, its Sam Tabar. He knows how to research and dig up all kinds of stuff on a particular fund so you will have a better idea about what to expect with the performance of the fund going forward.

 Sam Tabar has been thoroughly educated at some of the top educational institutions in the world, and he also has worked in both a financial and legal capacity at some of the leading legal firms in the world. He understands the risks and rewards associated with different types of investment opportunities. If you are thinking about investing in commodities in the near future, you may consider following some of his words of wisdom.
